Description: The caster gains damage resistance 40/- against all elemental forms of damage. The spell ends after absorbing 60 points of damage from any single elemental type.


  • This spell protects against sonic damage as well as elemental damage.
  • This spell stacks with — and is applied after — feat-based sources of damage resistance.
  • This spell will replace earlier castings of itself.
  • The standard scroll for this spell was added in the expansion packs. Thus, scrolls of energy buffer cannot be obtained in the original campaign. (Custom scrolls are still a possibility in other modules that do not require the expansions, though.)
  • Unlike the other elemental resistance spells, this one can only target the caster.
